2015 was a terrific year in science. We got up close and personal with Pluto, battled anti-vaccinationists, made big advancements in MS research and heaps more. And on Science on Top we had a lot of fun talking about it all. But it didn’t always go to plan, and there was lots left on the cutting room floor. Like when Lucas gave an in-depth explanation of how we measure astronomical distances, or when Helen Maynard-Casely talked about the Christmas Lectures. And as always there were plenty of times when we’d get the pronunciation wrong, get interrupted or go off on a tangent.
Most of the time, these all get left out of the final show. But they’re not lost forever. We’ve compiled some of the bloopers and outtakes from this year into an entirely new episode for you to enjoy. It’s not on the usual Science on Top RSS feed, so you HAVE to download it manually to listen to it – iTunes and other podcast aggregators won’t get it. You can also play it on Youtube, SoundCloud or player below.
Unlike our show normally, this special episode does contain swear words. It’s raw and unedited, an end-of-year bonus. Please don’t download it if naughty words offend you!
